Started with the village.

Looking at BrittneyMarie's wonderful village pictures, I decided why not start setting up mine as well. I am fighting my temptation not to set up all my decorations this weekend, so I will take it slowly, leading up to the Black Friday Christmas tree set up, and whatever decorations I have not set up by then. I figured why not show everybody on the forums how I go about setting everything up, and what the end result is on November27th.


What a mess........






Need to hide those wires.......




I hope to have a little more done by Friday.

Got some more work done tonight. I am having alot of fun setting this up. This is the first time I am attempting anything of this size, so hopefully it turns out ok. I picked up some, well, almost all of the pieces you will see on the table from the In-Laws. My Father-in-Law used to set up a massive display every Christmas. He passed away last year, so I am picking up his tradition of setting up a village every year.






Hope you enjoy.
